its a BRAND NEW viewsonic, at buy.com:
1680x1050, 8ms(!!!) response time, 800:1 contrast ratio, 3yr warranty from the mfr.
i find this to be an AMAZING deal - way cheaper than dell's, no taxes, free shipping, and no coupons to buy from ebay. straight up. hell, you may even have a buy.com coupon somewhere you can use...
AND much better specs than the DELL 20.1 widescreen LCDs. response time for viewsonic is 8ms (great for gaming), dell is 16ms (slower), dell's contrast ratio is only 600:1, viewsonic's is 800:1.
the only thing this doesnt have is the s-video and composite inputs, and extra USB hub. but who plugs a sweet widescreen LCD to a low-grade lo-fi connections anyway?
man, im so fkn tempted to get TWO.....
